BBC - The Day the Immigrants Left

Evan Davis explores the effects of immigration in the UK by focusing on Wisbech, a town in Cambridgeshire. Since 2004 this once prosperous market town has received up to 9,000 immigrants seeking work, but nearly 2,000 unemployed locals blame foreign workers for their predicament. As an experiment, immigrant employees are temporarily removed from their jobs, and the work given to the local unemployed. Now the town's British workers have a chance to prove they can cope.
